Keith Odom

Vice President and Fellow

Keith’s career at NI began as a summer internship in 1987 while he studied electrical and computer engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. Upon graduating and looking to start his career, Keith said he had a number of offers, “But ultimately I chose NI because in my interactions, I realized that we really do hire the ‘best and brightest’ in a way that fosters great camaraderie and teamwork. The people we hire are really smart and motivated to make the company successful, but can also have fun at the same time.” It was this type of work environment that attracted Keith and is the reason he has been at NI for almost 29 years.
